Firestorm mak­ing waves in Aus­tralia and over­seas

ABC (Australia) - - SHOW PROGRAM -

FIRESTORM FIRE PRO­TEC­TION was suc­cess­ful in be­ing awarded a NSW ten­der to retro­fit more than 2250 buses.

All buses were fit­ted with a ‘P’ Mark com­pli­ant Fog­maker Fire Sup­pres­sion Sys­tem and a Tyre Pres­sure Mon­i­tor­ing Sys­tem (TPMS) su­per­vis­ing the rear axle.

The project had a very tight sched­ule of 10 months, com­menc­ing in Novem­ber 2016 with com­ple­tion in Au­gust 2017. At the height of the project, Firestorm sur­passed 120 em­ploy­ees.

Fog­maker Aus­tralia’s Gen­eral Man­ager Kieran McHat­ton (right) says: “This is cur­rently the largest ‘P’ Mark fi re sup­pres­sion project in the world.

“In May, we in­stalled over 330 fi re sys­tems with the fi­nal project num­ber ap­prox­i­mately 2250 units.

“This, cou­pled with the on­go­ing na­tional and in­ter­na­tional works, has made 2017 our busiest year yet.

“Firestorm has been busy in de­sign­ing ve­hi­cle fire alarm Pan­els, which are now ex­ported. We take great pride in know­ing that our Aus­tralian de­signed and man­u­fac­tured S.M.A.R.T Pan­els are in­stalled on over 4000 buses in Aus­tralia and are now be­ing ex­ported to New Zealand, Amer­ica and shortly to Europe,” McHat­ton says.

Firestorm will be show­cas­ing the Fog­maker prod­uct and the range of S.M.A.R.T Prod­ucts at the Aus­trala­sia Bus & Coach Expo on the Gold Coast.
